Default Acura Vigor won't start, possibly electrical

I have a '92 Vigor and it recently decided to act very strange when I try to start it. If I turn the key in the ignition, then the starter will crank and the motor will start running, but the instant that I turn the key back from the "starting" position, the car shuts off. Note: I'm not turning the car off, I'm simply turning the key one notch back after the motor has fired.

This problem developed out of the blue. The car also runs at a low and inconsistent idle (supposedly around 600rpm or less) when I am able to get it running. If I try to start it, then it goes through the turning-over,shutting-off routine about 10 or more times before I am maybe able to get it to stay running. Even then it will turn off within a few minutes.

What is confusing is that the car has no trouble starting, has been running fine, and will stay running as long as the starter is being cranked. So I know that the batter is fine and that the cables work.

I am concerned that it is electrical because sometimes when I put the key in the ignition, the clock does not light up, and my windows won't go up and down (power windows).

Any help would be appreciated.
